30 Before 30! :)

So the title gives away that I am not 30 yet. ūüėČ

I have just few months and 5 years to accomplish things on this list. Not that this list would be my guiding light for the next few years, but since making a list is so much fun and striking things off the list is even more fun, I made this list. What do you think?How many of these things do you think I will be able to complete? How many should be done? Any suggestions that I might add here? ¬†What’s on your list if you have one? Don’t worry if you are over 30, you can write your 35 before 35 or 40 before 40 lists!
